I was hoping some of you mathemeticians can help me on this one.

I'm trying to figure out the odds of  Mega Millions if I omit the "bad" sequences.  I mean numbers such as
1,2,3,4,5, 
2,3,4,5,6,...... 18,19,20,21,22, 31,32,33,34,35.....

2,4,6,8,10
3,6,9,12,15

5,10,15,20,25

I know that there are chances that these number CAN happen but the odds are pretty slim. Is there some way I can figure this out in Excel?, I don't know maybe a formula to remove them or such?  Im not the greatest in math, and i can forget coding stuff.  But if I can remove them as well as the combinations of bonuses that can be ommitted( 1,2,3,4,5, bonus 6) then maybe I can see what the "real" odds are?

Thanks in advance.

    The odds are nearly the same. There are surprisingly (relatively) few of these types of combos, unless you're also willing to include 3 of a kind gaps e.g. 1,2,3,4,6 where the gaps are 1,1,1,2.

    In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
    Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.
